PATHOGENIC PARENTING (PARENTAL ALIENATION) IS CHILD ABUSE
Have you been denied access to your child? No parenting time or phone calls? Is your relationship with your child continually interfered with? Contact denial is child abuse. #Pathogenicparenting is a child protection issue, NOT a child custody issue.
Children have the absolute right to love both parents without being manipulated, bullied or coached. Emotional and psychological abuse cause the same chemical reaction in the brain as physical or sexual abuse. Don’t be an apathetic bystander. Be a voice for the voiceless.

What is Parental Alienation?
Parental alienation is pathogenic parenting. It is a form of child abuse performed by a hostile aggressive parent against the other, targeted parent, using their child(ren) as a weapon during a child custody dispute between unwed, separated, divorcing or divorced parents.Typically the pathogenic parent has interloping personality disorders that may include Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSbP). Most frequently, the personality disorders of pathogenic parents appear in the combination of narcissistic personality disorder and borderline personality disorder or very strong traits of each. This pathogenic parent will use tactics of FEAR, OBLIGATION and GUILT to control and distort the child’s perception of reality.

Is Parental Alienation Syndrome Recognized by Professionals?
The diagnosis “Parental Alienation Syndrome” is not included in DSM-5, however, a diagnosis of pathogenic parenting referred to as “Attachment Based Parental Alienation” by Dr. Craig Childress, does exist under other labels. Guess what else is not listed but is included under other labels? You will not find the terms psychopath or sociopath in DSM-5. They are listed as “Antisocial Personality Disorder”.In the latest release of the American Psychiatric Association‘s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-5, the diagnosis of pathogenic parenting is listed under codes V995.51 Child Psychological Abuse, Confirmed, V61.20 Parent-Child Relational Problem, V61.29 Child Affected by Parental Relationship Distress, and 309.4. According to Dr. Childress, the diagnostic indicators present in children for a diagnosis are (1) Attachment System Suppression (2) Personality Disorder Traits and (3) Delusional Belief. As the diagnoses for pathogenic parenting exist within DSM-5, any claim that further research is needed is negated.
In the book “Foundations”, Dr Craig Childress correctly points out that Dr. Richard Gardner was incorrect in suggesting a new syndrome (parental alienation syndrome) when pathogenic parenting can be identified within the constructs of psychological principles and the DSM.
